As we approach the 4th of July and our Independence Day Anniversary celebrations, I remind you that this truly is taxation without representation . . . our Congress did not vote for the Affordable Care Tax Act, but the Supremes have made it so!
THE AFFORDABLE CARE TAX ACT OF 2012
I pray that my opinion is an easier read than the thousands of long opinions regarding the Obamacare Supreme Court decision. Here is the actual rub . . . Why is Congress not screaming bloody murder on our behalf? If the legislation had been originally presented as a huge tax hike, it would NEVER have been passed in the House or Senate. Why are our countrymen not screaming in the streets in such mass that the media could not ignore them? As we approach the 4th of July and our Independence Day Anniversary celebrations, I remind you that this truly is taxation without representation . . . our Congress did not vote for the Affordable Care Tax Act, but the Supremes have made it so! The Supreme Court has stepped outside of its Constitutional boundaries in changing the core meaning of this un-Constitutional legislation. Today is a good day to remind you of the Declaration of Independence (below), in which the following line is copied from the list of grievances: “For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:”
I have taken the liberty to insert comments into the Declaration of Independence which are in parentheses and begin with the word NOTE. This young in spirit senior citizen is not a degreed scholar, but fairly well informed. I realize there are countless current issue notes I could add to the Declaration that would be true; I have restrained myself to the most serious of current grievances for you to ponder:
“IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
(NOTE: Yes, and Amen)
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
(NOTE: We are equal under the law, which is equal justice for all. Obama and cronies are preaching about “social equality”, whereby everyone ‘has the same stuff in their homes’, whether they have earned them or not. Our government charity system is full of disloyal, fraudulent and corrupt parasites. The government is doing very little to correct this out of control trend, thus giving it the thumbs up by its inaction. How far does our government slide into socialism before the grievances become insufferable? Are you getting there?)
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
(NOTE: Obama and his supporters have refused to enforce American Laws including immigration law, and the marriage law. Obama and his supporters claim our Constitution should give power to the government to force a separation between: the fruits of our labor and ourselves; parents and children; the Judeo-Christian values our government is based on from the people and their government.)
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
(NOTE: Obama has not only forbidden enforcement of Federal and State Law, but has sued the States of Alabama and Arizona over the enforcement of immigration laws.)
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
(NOTE: The Obama administration did not pass laws to protect Americans and our energy industries, but issued regulations which have murdered our energy industries, caused the price of energy to skyrocket, and millions have lost jobs over energy policies.)
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
(NOTE: Thirty percent of American land is owned by our government. This is more than the government could possibly need for the defense of our Republic. Some of the land is leased out to farming; some is wild life reserves; and some is used for government offices. When making a decision over water for crops to feed America, and the life of a small fish which could become extinct, the fish wins and Americans lose. Who chooses a barely known small fish over feeding America? The environmentalists in our government are out of control.)
(NOTE: Any reasonable research will determine that global warming is not a reality anymore, and that when the warming was less than a degree of warmth over a hundred years, it was NOT caused by man. France is in economic failure due to the green jobs programs in her country. In the face of proof as recent as France, our politicians continue to insist that global warming is real, and that green jobs programs will save our economy. It would be laughable if it were not so provably false. Pro global warming people use computer models to prove their points, even when the same people cannot predict next week’s weather accurately. The model based on actual temperatures, proves there is no remarkable global warming, and in fact, we are now in a cooling trend. When one reads about HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), you cannot help but wonder if our government is screwing around with mother-nature to try to manipulate the debate.)
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
(NOTE: Is it possible that this administration has bought off even the highest judicial position in the land? We not only know that Congress people were bought off when the Affordable Health Care Act was passed, it was reported on as the bribes were happening.)
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
(NOTE: Wow. This one is the crux of big government vs. small government, and all the extreme left Czars Obama has appointed.)
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
(NOTE: Our muscle was used recently in the Middle East without congressional approval. The outcome will be Sharia Law in Egypt, to the detriment of its population – especially the female population which will be subjected to Sharia Law abuses too horrible to be believed.)
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
(NOTE: Congress is becoming more and more obsolete with each day that they allow Judges and the Administration to make laws. Under the National Defense Authorization Act, it is possible Americans will be held without benefit of being addressed by their accuser, and without benefit of trial.)
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
(NOTE: The United States is now considered as a war zone under the National Defense Authorization Act.)
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
(NOTE: Yes, as our military exits the Middle East, private contractors are being sent by our government to replace the military. This is the administration’s private civil army. Who decides what this contract force does and does not do on our behalf?)
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
(NOTE: This administration continues to separate us by its actions, and association with race baiters and dividers. This administration has not closed our borders, thus allowing all manner of murders and lawlessness within our borders.)
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
(NOTE: The people in 30 states have voted on what defines marriage – for the union of one man and one woman. This administration has stated marriage policy opposite of the majority of American citizens.
The people of the 50 states were very vocal against the Affordable Health Care Act, and our president and our representatives have ignored their constituents.)
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world (NOTE: God) for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence (NOTE: God’s Providence), we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
(NOTE: A fair question: How many states would join the union today?)

(NOTE: The Walton family sat around their big kitchen table and voted for George Walton, a favored cousin, to sign this awesome document. Aw come on, we needed a little levity to bring our spirits out of the gutter of the defiance of our government against the majority of their constituents.
Happy 4th of July to my fellow patriots. I join you in prayer to the Almighty for renewed providence, and the awakening of the American people for their republic in time of great need.)
I have been absent for a while . . . great major surgery with setbacks leading to doing really well today. I must have written 50 partial commentaries in the last 8 months. I have been with you all in spirit, and am so happy to be well enough to finish one. God Bless you all on this coming 4th of July, 2012.
Biography - Juanita Holloway-Walters
Juanita has forty five years experience as an Accountant. During her last twenty eight years she specialized in the start up phase and / or the recovery phase of businesses from two million in revenue per year, to fifteen million per year. Her sphere of successful influence ranges from accounting, to operations, to the backroom marketing effort. Streamlining and organizing out of control businesses is serious fun for her.
The art of raising a family while working was of supreme importance to her; and she chose a route of self-education coupled with some college. Her endeavors in self-education range from philosophy and history, to Christian studies outside of mainstream religious organizations. Much of her college dollar was spent on enhancing natural management skills and writing skills.
Although Juanita has lived in many regions of the country, she is settled near the Gulf coast in her home state of Texas.
